I think these might belong to Marvin Israel, i remember reading that he was shooting Elvis the same time as Wertheimer especially at Audubon Drive in 1956, if it's not Marvin Israel then it's one of the other photographers from that time period.

Israel was thought to have taken about 400 pics of Elvis; only around 70 were included in the book "Elvis Presley 1956". As Israel is now dead, it is harder to trace anybody who may know of what happened to the rest of his stash.

These are Phil Harrington photos, taken in late May 1956. He was on assignment for Look magazine. The first is from 1034 Audubon in Memphis, probably May 29. The other is backstage in Dayton, Ohio on May 27, with cousin Gene Smith.

What site are these from?

Wonderful photos, totally new to me!!! :smt007
Thank you very much!

E-Cat wrote some times ago: "According to the photographer Phillip Harrington, the photos was taken just after they arrived from a tour (instruments stlll packed on the roof of the car). They finished the tour after the last 8 pm show in Dayton, OH on May 27th. Elvis arrived by plane from Dayton on May 28th, and the road-trip from Dayton to Memphis is about 10 hrs (525 m). Scotty & Bill also left Dayton early morning (May 28th) and arrived at Elvis house later that same day (late afternoon / early evening)"

Thanks. Both of the direct pages confirm what I posted: they each clearly read "35mm negative by Phillip Harrington."

Were these not in Mike Rose's book with the other unpublished Harrington photos?

BTW, the shorpy site is fantastic. I've been a fan of it for sometime.

No, Jim, not in Michael Rose's book, these are new.

If the photo below (from Marvin Israel's book) was taken on May 28, then the first photo and others with that shirt may be from May 29 - maibe the boys arrived, indeed, on May 28 late afternoon, but i don't think Elvis change his shrt.
